Today’s NM Film Fix

CONGRATULATIONS #NMFILM

CLICK FOR AUDIO:

“Hell or High Water” is nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Picture. The film was made right here in New Mexico and starred home grown actors: Amber Midthunder, Alma Sisneros, Jackamoe Buzzell, Debriana Mansini and more!

Local casting directors Jo Edna Boldin and Marie Kohl McMaster have already won the prestigious Casting Society of America Artios award for their work on the film.

Of the hundreds of New Mexicans who worked as cast and crew, I spoke with several while production was rolling and the sentiment across the board was that they knew the film would be something special. Congrats to all involved!

Here’s local actor Dylan Wisneski who was stand in and photo double for lead actor Chris Pine for the duration.
